Beyonce Heats Up The March Vogue, Calls Daughter Blue Ivy 'My Homey'

If there's a star who's everywhere right now, it's Beyonce.
Last week she performed during halftime of Super Bowl XLVII and announced a huge summer tour; and this week she pulled in her 17th Grammy Award, for Best Traditional R&B Performance for her single "Love On Top."
Now, Queen B's looking sexy on the cover of the March issue of Vogue magazine and talking all about how motherhood has changed her life since giving birth to daughter Blue Ivy a year ago.
"Right now, after giving birth, I really understand the power of my body," she tells Vogue editor Jason Gay. "I just feel my body means something completely different. I feel a lot more confident about it. Even being heavier, thinner, whatever."
"I feel a lot more like a woman. More feminine, more sensual. And no shame."
When discussing daughter Blue Ivy, Beyonce recalls her pregnancy, saying, "I felt very maternal around eight months, and I thought I couldn't bond any more until I saw the baby."
Now she refers to the tot as "my road dog, my homey, my best friend."
In addition to gushing over her daughter, Beyonce also talks about her mom, Tina; saying she often gets worked up over tabloid rumors about her daughter's personal life.
Tina found it difficult when rumors that the former Destiny's Child singer was faking her pregnancy started.
She tells Vogue, "It's tough as a mother because people say all this crazy stuff... and I want to say (to Beyonce), 'You should tell them' sometimes. She'll say, 'Mom, I don't owe them that. Let them say what they want to say.'"
"That was very odd," Beyonce adds about the rumors. "Who would even think of that?"
What about having more kids?
Beyonce says that more children are "definitely" on the horizon for her, and at some point she may even be stepping away from the spotlight. Hard to believe with all the attention she's gotten lately, which she seems to be relishing.
"When I was younger, there were moments where I said, 'I'm not going to have children.' And then moments when I wanted four. And now I definitely want another, but I don't know when," she says.
But she does want Blue Ivy to grow up and have a normal childhood, for which she alludes to putting her career on hold someday in the not too distant future.
"At some point it's very important to me that my daughter is able to experience life and run through the sprinklers and have slumber parties and trust and live and do all the things that any child should be able to do," she says. School visits and lemonade stands and all that stuff. It's very important for me."
